Laurel Hardware Ratings and Reviews

Food and drinks were awesome - I haven't had anything here I did not like (even if the description seems a bit unique). Compliments to the chef for creative and well executed dishes coupled with very knowledgeable wait staff. We took Ryan's recommendations for the specials and dessert and he was spot on.

We love Laurel Hardware. It had been a while since we there last and this meal was great as well. I will say, however, that the food was not as universally outstanding. Don't get me wrong, it's amazing. But the chicken skewers were fair. And the hand-cut fries were unmemorable. Overall, I still love this place!
Great spot for drinks and ambiance, but ...
Great spot for drinks and ambiance, but don't get me wrong, the food is good, the price point is not. It's just way to inflated for what is placed on to the table. That's just part of WeHo dining I guess. I'll stick to just drinks next time and maybe a pizza.

The food was fantastic, the room is modern and well decorated rustic chic- and the cocktails were really good. My only complaint is that the drink order (1 beer,1 cocktail) took a full 15 minutes (clocked) to arrive and the delay was apparently due to a changing of the keg which explains the beer but not the cocktail as we were one of only 3 tables seated at 11:15am. The other thing is that my husbands meal arrived a full 10 minutes before mine so we had to share his so that we both could eat as opposed to him waiting while it got cold or him eating while I watched. He was pretty much finished his food by the time my meal arrived. Not good timing and no apology was given. The food was delicious though so I'd go back. The server gave us the minimum amount of service required.

The service was good, but waiting in an overcrowded bar for my table to become ready was a bit much. Too many people crowded around. The server was very nice and my food came out pretty quickly. This is not a place to go for a date, especially on the weekend. I think they need to cut back on how many people they allow to squeeze in at the bar so people eating can actually hear each other. I will try a week night and see how it goes.

Food was delicious; service was slow-but-courteous-and-knowledgable; room is loud; if you sit in the booth area, there is a hollow wooden platform that makes an annoying racket every time someone stomps by! Would not recommend sitting in that area as a deuce.

What jewel. Deceptive entrance to this "hardware store" hides a great bar, dining area, and patio. We had brunch and could not have been more pleased. Portion sizes are perfect - not too big or small - and everything we ordered was delicious. The blood orange mimosa was yummy; and the coffee superb. Our server was the perfect balance as well - attentive but not hovering.
Mediocre food with apathetic service to ...
Mediocre food with apathetic service to be honest. Short rib hash should be renamed "bell pepper hash" and the croque madame is mostly bread, nothing like the open faced ham and cheese sauce classic (it is from their sister restaurant Ysabel I think). This restaurant used to be packed for Sunday brunch but was never more then half full this visit. Maybe a reflection of the current level of food and service?

Overall, we had a wonderful time and it was a lot of fun. Food was great except the bread pudding was so, so. Disappointed we could not be seated in the patio when we had requested it in the reservation. When we arrived, we were told it was not ready (6:30pm) and no one was seated there. A short while later it completely filled up.

we visit Laurel Hardware more often than not and introduced it to two friends who had never been.
It's always a great experience for dining and or cocktails. Laurel never lets us down!!
The service is great as well as the attentive.
We will be back soon!

Absolutely loved this place, we had a booth near the door to the outside patio. We had about 12 small plates, shared between 4 of us, the serving size for each was generous. The food was delicious, full of flavor and cooked perfectly. Service was fantastic, and the cocktails, well, the el rey was the winner but they were all very good. Will definitely be going back soon.
While the outside was deceiving, the ins ...
While the outside was deceiving, the inside was spunky and modern. We were a group of 6 that started with cocktails at the bar. We were seated outside, on the back patio under shade trees with cute string lights around the trunks. The atmosphere was great but the food and the drinks made the evening perfect. Our waiter was attentive and gave great recommendations. Order the Lollipop Sprouts! You won't be disappointed!

The seating was excruciatingly uncomfortable and the maitresse d' seemed full of unearned attitude, as if we were lucky to be admitted. On the plus side, our server was attentive and personable, and the steak tartar was exceptional. If you want a place where you can see a bunch of people who want to be seen, then go. Overall, however, I'd say Laurel Hardware is a legend in its own mind.

I like the idea of cooperative service - server takes orders but everyone helps out by running food, clearing tables, etc. However, it was our experience that no one including our main server checked back to see if we wanted more drinks (our glasses were empty when the food began arriving and no one noticed - missed opportunity for wine/beer sales, etc.,etc. Michelle, who was not our server this time, did a better job last time of paying attention to her tables so that nothing fell through the cracks.
Anxious to see what you're doing in the front when it's done.
